Abstract Mind

Los Angeles band GUIDES have just released a brand new single titled, “Pictures on Pictures.” The dingy, dronal post-punk gem is awash in anxious ambient noise and ripe with the sort of familiar, suppressed tension that often lurks in the shadowy corners of the mind threatening to erupt without a moment’s notice.

UK-based singer-songwriter-producer Holly ‘Låpsley’ Fletcher has revealed a brand new song titled, “Hurt Me.” Off of her forthcoming XL Recordings single, “Hurt Me/Burn,” the song is a captivating blend of sparse electronics and gorgeous, emotive songwriting that recalls the likes of both The xx and Adele, and yet is so much more unhinged.

ANIMAL FEELINGS is New York-based artist Oli Chang’s latest musical experiment. Highly collaborative in spirit, the album evokes a mad-capped, improvisational dance party with a set list that ranges from melodically driven European disco to seductive rock and soul mash-ups. Heard best on his latest single “Fire,” which intertwines indie dance pop with harder techno sounds, the song is accompanied by an Adam France directed video that features incredible choreography, mischievous animation and cutting-edge graphics meant to coalesce in the style of French photographer Jean-Paul Goude.
